Liverpool 'sign' in Anfield

Konaté has been the only signing, but the additions follow one another: Alisson Bécker, Fabinho, Trent Alexander Arnold ... The next targets are Van Dijk, Salah, Mané and Robertson.


Ibrahima Konaté was Jürgen Klopp's only Liverpool signing this summer. The French central, from RB Leipzig, has arrived to reinforce the defense after a season in which the 'reds' had a plague of injuries in defense. With their age (22 years) and their potential, at Anfield they have one more asset to lay the foundations of the future together with Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, once both have recovered from their long-lasting injuries that practically separated them. more than half a season.

Liverpool has dedicated the transfer market to strengthening its team for the future. He has done it without signings, yes, but renewing his spine. In the last two weeks, three renewals at once: Alisson Bécker extended his relationship with Liverpool until 2027 (his previous agreement ended in 2024), Fabinho did it until 2026 (it ended in 2023) and Trent Alexander Arnold will be, at least, until the year 2025. In addition, there have also been three other contract extensions: Adrián San Miguel, Caoimhin Kelleher and the young and promising Harvey Elliot, who at 18 years old aims to stay in the first team throughout the course.

Michael Edwards, the club's sporting director, has had a job recently and with these players he has not finished the task. Next targets are Van Dijk, Salah, Mané and Robertson, key players in a Klopp gala lineup. Negotiations with Jordan Henderson, the 31-year-old captain, have also started, but according to The Athletic they have not made any positive progress yet. The Englishman enters his last two years of contract, as do Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keita.
